Principal McKenzie often refers to the library as “the heart of the school.” The new library was completed in 2020, and now includes the LAVA Recording Studio (a place for students to record podcasts, create stop motion animation, and work with a green screen) in addition to all the wonderful books the students have access to. Classes visit the library once per week, and students are able to go to the library at other checkout times as needed to get new books. New this year is SPARK time every day between 11:15-1:00, when students may visit the library during their recess time or with teacher permission.
The library is open for checkout after school Tuesdays through Fridays until 3:30. Students must first be dismissed from their homeroom teacher to their parent/caregiver or to walk home.
For additional information or any questions about the library, please contact the Tanglewood librarian, Kriste Wolfe, at email@example.com.
